The Law of Street Art: Copyright Protections and Other Issues to Consider.

Wednesday, September 4, 2019 from 5pm - 7pm at Ironton Distillery & Crafthouse


Denver’s vibrant neighborhoods are alive with street murals. These large-format, art projects are beautiful, but they belie a number of important legal issues, including copyright, property ownership, use of street murals in other artistic or commercial depictions of street murals, and artists' moral rights in their expressions.

As part of CRUSH WALLS 2019 , Zach Warkentin of Warkentin LLC and our own Dave Ratner of Creative Law Network will present on fundamental copyright and other legal issues for street muralists and street art. This event is presented in coordination with the Colorado Bar Association's Sports and Entertainment Section and RiNo Art District.

Art + Law Crested Butte

Friday, September 6, 2019 from 10am - 4pm at The Depot


The morning will feature a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) presentation for attorneys. Attendees can earn two CLE credits and learn how they can apply their legal practice to support the creative industries in Colorado.

The afternoon session will focus on navigating common legal issues that creative professionals and entities encounter. This interactive workshop will focus on the basics of intellectual property law, common questions regarding contracts and various business entities for creative endeavors.

This arts-infused, legal education day will include a delicious lunch, networking and connections to the vibrant creative community in Crested Butte — plus a happy hour with live music!
